Cosmetic Dentistry

From minor improvements to a full smile makeover, at Lighthouse Dental we know how important healthy teeth are! We offer a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments to fit you and your dream smile.

Let us fix that chipped tooth, cracked tooth or a gap in your teeth with fast, easy and affordable with dental bonding. Dental bonding can also be used to improve the appearance of slightly discolored teeth and to change the shape of teeth, but it is typically recommended only for small cosmetic changes. Unlike other cosmetic treatments, dental bonding can be performed with little to no advance preparation. Dental bonding is also convenient and durable, taking just 30-60 minutes per tooth and lasting from three to 10 years.

Today’s teeth whitening treatments are so easy, convenient and affordable that they’ve become a regular part of everyone’s beauty routine. If you haven’t tried one yet, we have plenty of choices. For the fastest, most dramatic results, consider laser teeth whitening. Laser teeth whitening treatments take just an hour and can whiten teeth up to 10 shades. If you’re the do-it-yourself type, an at-home teeth whitening kit might be right for you. These professional grade teeth whitening kits produce excellent results over longer periods. They can be purchased from us or over-the-counter, but for best results, talk to us before trying any over-the-counter teeth whitening system.

Years ago, smile makeovers involved multiple dental treatments over a period of several months. That’s no longer the case, thanks to porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are ultrathin shells made of translucent porcelain that can be bonded to your teeth for cosmetic purposes. Extremely versatile and durable, porcelain veneers are an excellent option whether you want a total smile makeover or need to cover a chipped tooth, mask a cracked tooth, or close gaps between your teeth. They require little to no prepping and can often be applied in just one dental visit!

Tired of masking your smile because you don’t like the way your teeth look? A smile makeover can be a big boost to your confidence and self-esteem. With a total smile makeover, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, gapped teeth, crooked teeth, stained teeth and gapped teeth can be completely transformed into the smile of your dreams. This is done through a combination of restorative and cosmetic dental treatments, including white fillings, cosmetic dental bonding, porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental crowns, dental braces, dental bridges and dental implants.

Our state of the art CEREC machine is a computer that acts as a dental restoration tool, allowing us to restore decayed, broken or root canal teeth, place dental crowns, remove defective amalgam (silver) fillings, or place porcelain dental veneers in just one appointment. Call Lighthouse Dental today, to schedule your consultation!

A good dental team should work like a well-oiled machine, with everyone doing their part to make your appointment run smoothly. But at our office, we also think our equipment should work like part of the team, with each new technology helping to give you the most efficient care possible. That’s why we now offer CEREC®, the state-of-the art computer that’s making dental care a whole lot faster.

It may seem hard to believe that a machine so small could make such an impact, but CEREC® works like a miniature dental lab to create ceramic crowns, veneers and more. First, it takes 3-D pictures of your mouth to create an exact map of your teeth and gums. Then it actually shapes the porcelain right here in our office to create a custom fit while you wait!

With CEREC®, it only takes one appointment to receive natural-looking fillings, crowns and veneers — we can usually create each piece in as little as an hour, eliminating weeks of time waiting for your restorations! You get the care you need without having to schedule multiple visits for impressions, fittings and placement.

We’ve worked hard to build the best possible team to care for your teeth, and with cutting edge technology like CEREC®, we’re making sure we always have new ways to make you smile. Ask us about our one-visit restorations at your next appointment — we’re always eager to show off our newest recruit.
